Portland, OR (Sports Network) - The Portland Timbers signed defender Ryan
Miller on Monday after he spent four seasons in Sweden.
Miller was originally taken in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by the Columbus Crew
before he moved on to D.C. United.
The 28-year-old then moved overseas to play in Sweden for four seasons, first
signing with Ljungskile SK and then appearing in 73 matches over the course of
three campaigns with Halmstads.
"Ryan is an experienced pro and a great addition to the club," said Caleb
Porter, head coach of the Timbers. "His ability to go box to box as a right
back fits what we are looking for in that position. He is another proven piece
that brings traits we want in the locker room as well."
